Submission + - Blackberry PIN not hardcoded. Security nightmare (berryreview.com)

Mourgos writes: Straight from berryreview.com "I have to say that I always considered the ability to unlock BlackBerrys as a black art. I know very little about how it is done and assumed ninjas broke into RIM secret underground bunker and stole the codes :) (I'm kidding) On the other hand I got a bit of insight today from B1620N on how some companies are firmware flashing these BlackBerrys. I cannot say who uses this solution but I did not believe this was possible! I would not believe it unless I got it from a trusted source that it works. Furious Gold seems to be based on a tool that leaked from RIM (MMLMultiLoader) a bit back that we are not allowed to talk about. :) The downside to this method is that it only works when the device is connected to the computer with the software so I am not sure how remote unlocking works. It also costs a pretty penny as you can see on the Furious Gold website. (~189-300 Euro)"
